In 1922, the Communist Party of China established its first higher education institution — Shanghai University.

With the department as the predecessor, the School of Foreign Languages of Shanghai University then began its evolution. In 1995, the School of Foreign Languages was formally founded. In 2005, SFL was bestowed by Shanghai Education Commission a key project for developing its English undergraduate program. In 2006, the subject of English was rated Class A in the National Evaluation for English Undergraduate Program.
